We all know what it is like when hair is feeling dull, brittle and dry. You’ve run out of your favourite deep conditioner and are at a loss as to how to get your hair back to its luscious state? No need to panic! This protein treatment will get your hair looking and feeling vibrant and full of life again, and all you need is an egg and your go-to nourishing hair oil.
Simply mix a free-range egg with organic, unrefined virgin coconut oil. Depending on your hair length you may need 1-2 eggs. Apply the mixture to your hair, paying special attention to the areas that need it the most. I tend to concentrate the mixture towards my ends, since I still have patches that have heat damage. Once you have distributed the slimy mixture all over your hair, wrap the hair in a plastic cap and a towel. The towel helps the protein treatment to penetrate the hair shaft. Leave the treatment on for at least 30 minutes. Cleanse hair and style as usual.
Raw egg is beneficial to the hair because the egg itself is a great source of protein. It wraps around the hair shaft, expelling its wonderful properties. Of course, you can leave it at that, but I like adding some organic, unrefined oil (coconut, jojoba, olive or almond) and avocado all smoothly blended, for extra nourishment. Use this super easy protein treatment 2 to 3 times a month for an extra nourishing boost and your curls will just love it. It’s definitely worth a try!
